FA Community Shield
The Football Association Challenge Cup , also known as the FA Cup for short , is the largest turn-based cup competition in English football . In addition to the Premier League, it is run by the Football Association and is also named after it. Since teams from all leagues participate in the competition, there is a possibility that teams from the lower leagues will kick the top teams out of the competition.
The FA Cup was first held in 1871/72, making it the oldest football competition in the world. In the 2011/12 FA Cup season , the record number of 763 teams played for the title.
The competition is a round-robin competition whose pairings are determined randomly by lot. There are no seeded teams. The lot also decides which team has the home game right. If the game ends in a draw, there will be a second leg on the other team's pitch. If the second leg also ends in a draw, there will be extra time and a possible penalty shoot-out . There used to be more replay games in such a case, so that occasionally up to five games were needed to find a winner. The semi-finals take place in a neutral place. The final will normally be played at Wembley Stadium in London . While the stadium was being rebuilt, the finals took place at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff . The 2001 final became the first FA Cup final to be played outside of England.
The competition begins in August with the extra preparatory round for teams that do not play in the professional leagues. Any team that is a member of the Football Association, whose ability corresponds to a certain standard of performance and which has an appropriate playing field can participate. 763 clubs took part in the 2011/12 season. The extra preparatory round is followed by the preparatory round, four qualifying rounds, six normal cup rounds, the two semi-finals and finally the final. All teams in the Football League can participate, as can all teams that took part in the FA Vase or FA Trophy in the previous season and are allowed to play in a recognized league for the current season. All participating teams must have a stadium with adequate and safe capacity.
The teams from the top leagues are exempted from some of these rounds: Teams from the Nationwide Conference will compete from the fourth qualifying round, teams from League 1 and League 2 of the Football League will meet the winners of the fourth in the drawing of the first main round in November Qualifying round. Football League Championship and Premier League clubs take part in the competition from the third main round. This traditionally takes place on the first weekend in January. The final takes place at the end of the season in May. Tottenham Hotspur claimed to be the only team from outside the league to have won the FA Cup in 1901 (they played in the Southern League at the time and only became members of the Football League in 1908). At that time, however, the football league only consisted of two divisions with 18 teams each. Thus, the victory then is comparable to the victory of one of the back teams from the First Division today.
The team that wins the cup qualifies for the group stage in the Europa League . If the cup winner is already qualified for an international competition via the Premier League, the league sixth of the Premier League moves up.
Successes of lower-class teams
In the FA Cup there were numerous victories of lower class teams against teams from higher leagues. Yeovil Town , then in the Southern League , reached the fifth main round in 1948/49 and later beat several professional teams before they made it to the Football League in 2003 . The AFC Bournemouth struck 1956/57 the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur . He was only defeated by Manchester United in a competitive quarter-finals . Hereford United beat Newcastle in 1971. In a game of the fifth round met in 1977/78, two such teams meet: AFC Wrexham from the Third Division had Bristol City beaten and Newcastle, the amateurs of Blyth Spartans had Stoke City defeated. Wrexham won the replay in front of a large crowd in St. James' Park in Newcastle. In the subsequent round, Wrexham was beaten by Arsenal . A few years later, Wrexham took revenge when it beat Arsenal in the 1992 replay in Wales . This is particularly noteworthy given that Arsenal were English champions the previous season and Wrexham ended that season at the bottom of the table. In 2008, the second-rate club beat Barnsley FC to Liverpool FC in the second round at Anfield 1 by 2. In the quarter-finals that followed, Barnsley won 1-0 against Chelsea with a goal by Nigerian striker Odejayi in the 66th minute of the game at their home in Oakwell Stadium .
- After the Aston Villas victory in 1895, the trophy was displayed in a Birmingham shop window and, like the Coupe Jules Rimet, stolen. Since then, a replica has been played. The original has not yet been found.
- In 1903, Bury beat the Derby County's team 6-0 and, together with Manchester City, achieved the highest ever FA Cup final result against Watford (6-0) in 2019.
- The first final at Wembley Stadium in 1923 drew a crowd of over 200,000, well over the permitted capacity. The FA had underestimated the crowd; therefore no tickets were sold, but the entrance fee was collected directly at the entrance. Crowds poured onto the field but were moved to turn back by mounted police officers including George Scorey and his gray horse Billy, and the game continued with spectators on the sidelines. The game became known as the White Horse Final .
- In 1927 the Welsh club Cardiff City defeated Arsenal 1-0 in the final and secured the title as the first and to date only non-English club.
- Bert Turner scored two goals within one minute in 1946: first an own goal in the 85th minute to make it 1-0 in favor of Derby County and in the 86th minute to make it 1-1 for his club Charlton Athletic . The game then went into extra time and was lost 4-1.
- The 1953 final was known as the Matthews Final . In the game between Blackpool FC and Bolton Wanderers , Stanley Matthews managed to win the FA Cup with Blackpool in his third attempt at the age of 38. Bolton was 3-1 ahead with 22 minutes to go. Then Blackpool scored through Stan Mortensen after a cross pass from Matthews. With less than five minutes remaining, Blackpool equalized with a Mortensen free kick. Shortly after the restart, when everyone was expecting extra time, Bill Perry scored the 4-3 after a pass from Matthews.
- 1956 Manchester City - Birmingham City : In the 75th minute, the German goalkeeper Bert Trautmann of Manchester City broke a cervical vertebra in a collision with an opponent and, despite this injury, held out until the end of the game. Manchester City also won the FA Cup 3-1 on their saves. Since then, Trautmann has been considered one of the heroes of English football.
- In 1984 Plymouth Argyle under Johnny Hore narrowly missed out on becoming the first team from the Third Division in a final. In an exciting semi-final at Villa Park, Watford FC remained the narrow winner with 1-0. Started in the first round, Argyle beat Southend United (in the replay), Barkin FC , Newport County (in the replay), West Bromwich Albion and Derby County (in the replay).
- 1988 beat underdogs from FC Wimbledon to Liverpool with 1: 0th It was one of the most exciting games in the history of the competition. Lawrie Sanchez scored the winning goal after a free kick from Dennis Wise in the 37th minute. Wimbledon's goalkeeper Dave Beasant saved a penalty from John Aldridge in the 61st minute. He is the first goalkeeper to have achieved this in an FA Cup final. He was also the first goalkeeper to lead a team to victory in the cup as team captain.
- In the 1989 semifinals between Liverpool FC and Nottingham Forest , 96 people died during the opening minutes due to overcrowding in the block. The incident is now known as the Hillsborough disaster .
- The first final to be played outside of England took place in 2001 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff , Wales . Liverpool won 2-1 against Arsenal after falling behind. Arsenal won the trophy in Wales for the next two years.
- In the 2002/03 season, the final was held under one roof for the first time. This game also took place at the Millennium Stadium . The roof was closed to protect the lawn from rain. Arsenal beat Southampton FC 1-0.
- That same year, Team Bath (from the University of Bath ) became the first university team since 1888 to qualify for the competition. It survived all qualifying rounds and was just beaten by Mansfield Town in the first main round .
- In 2005, a final was decided on penalties for the first time . Arsenal beat Manchester United 5-4 after a goalless 120 minutes.
- Louis Saha from Everton scored 2009 after 25 seconds, the fastest goal in the history of the FA Cup final.
- Didier Drogba is the only player to have scored a goal in four finals: 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012
- Ian Rush scored the most final goals: 5 in 1986 (2), 1989 (2) and 1992.
- For the first time in the history of the competition, two clubs in the lower-tier National League ( Lincoln City FC and Sutton United ) qualified for the round of 16 in the 2016/17 season .
The Arab airline Emirates has been the main sponsor of the cup since the 2015/16 season , which is why it has been sponsored by the Emirates FA Cup since then .

Eight clubs won the trophy as part of the cup win and championship double : Preston North End (1889), Aston Villa (1897), Tottenham Hotspur (1961), Arsenal FC (1971, 1998, 2002), Liverpool FC (1986), Manchester United (1994, 1996, 1999), Chelsea FC (2010) and Manchester City (2019). Arsenal and Manchester share a record of three double wins. In 2019 Manchester City became the first English team to win the home treble when they also won the championship and Football League Cup .
In 1999, in addition to the double, Manchester United was the only English club to date to achieve the triple by winning the Champions League .
In 2001 Liverpool did not win the championship, but won the League Cup and UEFA Cup in addition to the FA Cup . This less prestigious triple success is derisively referred to as the Tin Pot Treble by opposing fans .
